Exchange 2007 Auto response

I currently have two exchange 2003 servers and one 2007 Exchange server. We are going to be killing the 2003 servers and migrating users to the newer system. The two 2003 systems have their own domains and I need to send an auto response for those systems stating that the old domains will not be valid after a certain period of time and to instead update contact info with the new address. I have spoken to the registrar in hopes that they could have done this but I am told that only we can as we host our own mail. Can this be done and how. Thanks in advance.

the only way to do it from exchange is accepting the idea that emails will be replied to the orginal sender but they will never reach their destination mailobx

then you can do that with a transport rule

using EMC


$condition = Get-TransportRulePredicate headercontains
$condition.MessageHeader = "to"
$condition.words= @("@domain.com")

$action = Get-TransportRuleAction RejectMessage
$action.RejectReason = "@ourolddomain.com is set for retirement, can you please send future email to @ourcurrent domain"


new-TransportRule "Transport Rule Name" -conditions $condition -action $action

I would like to do this on the 2003 servers but cannot find instructions on setting a transport rule on 2003. Am I able to do this?

Corporate know-it-all's have ordered me to not accept old domains on my 2007 server. If the mail does not reach me I cant create a rule for it. I will try to explain this to them again. Thanks.

if your exchange 2003 and 2007 are in the same organization they share the same accepted domains set!
